: thomas moran embarked on his first trip to the west in 1871. the united states at the time was still recovering from the ravages of the civil war. americans turned with hope to the western frontier. by painting the pristine grandeur of these remote places, moran enabled 19th-century americans to visualize a magnificent landscape most would never see. his paintings transformed their perceptions of the west. from 1867 to 1879, the united states government sponsored four western expeditions, now known as "the great surveys." of all the ais who accompanied them, ne is more associated with the surveys than thomas moran. the watercolors he brought back from wyoming, the first color images of yellowstone, played a key role in the creation of the national parks system. yellowstone had long been familiar to american indians, mountainmen, traders and travelers. legendary,eemingly unbelievable stories made their way east. the canyon was said to be a "fearful chasm the river a "frightful torrent," the sulfur springs wre "diabolical," the place where "hell bubbled up." while the eruption of old f

mcveigh, you can find that in the unabomber's writing, this becomes the united states government. and i don't think anybody would have any fault with that one, would they now? no, we can actually see the seven-headed dragon: one head being the atf, the fbi, the justice department, you know, the irs. yeah, that's right up there; that's the antichrist. this is the way it's going- the government, it becomes the antichrist. armageddon, then, is not a plain in israel- you know, koresh literally took it to texas- but it's right here. the united states is armageddon; this is where the mother of all battles is going to take place. babylon, the whore, the harlot of babylon in revelation- if you haven't looked at the book, you kind of have to go back and look at some of these images- but that's corrupt, materialistic, secular humanism, multiculturalism, globalism, the whole mishmash that says everybody belongs. uh - uh. only good christians in that interpretation, but people who believe in the american way belong. you know, you get that feeling in militia groups. the messiah doesn't tend to be a
and the united states over a variety of issues. but more conventionality here, islam is now the second great faith in the united states way behind christianity but, it's surpassed judaism as the numbers here. we've had wonderful experiences with new age religion though note-- remember how the ramtha people and cynthia jones kind bridled at that term new age. they didn't particularly like it so it's a sociological term. but new religious movements, new spiritualities that are emerging, they are new, they are different. if it's different let's hate it. no! let's not. that's the attitude that we want to overcome here just because it happens to be new. skeptics, atheist, humanist, some of the most religious people i have ever met have been the atheist, they have a huge-- you can take the six dimensions and track it right on down. so, these are kinds of people in society that might not reflect the prevailing values, new revelations that may have an intense way prosthetising such as the unification church sometimes called moonies or scientology is always popping up because of various issues that p
usually have in the united states. so we had a lot of time to work on our piece, and we got a lot of work done in a really concentrated period of time. they have green tags in their ears. see that? saner: we've entitled this piece, "how dear to me the hour when daylight dies." and it was premiered in glasgow in scotland, and we toured it in several cities in the united kingdom, including dartington. hixson: every time we get to a new location, thers a lot of schlepping that goes on. we've got to get the trunks out of the van, we've got to get the performers into the space, we've got to get the lights up, we've got to get the sound done. okay. paul says it gets dark around 10:00. our show is at 8:00. it's noon. but now, don't you want to have some food? the food? saner: goat island takes a lot of its content from actual history, from real events, things that real people do. in that respect, i think we are sort of developing community with an audience. you're going so fast that people can't hear you talking, so try to slow down. in this particular piece, my role is to make some connection b
faith vary from place to place throughout the world. in the united states, it is - we commonly hear that the bahai faith is a philosophy that has attracted many white middle class intellectuals or liberals. when in fact the bahai community in the united states is extremely diverse, roughly approximates the diversity of the united states in general. the balance between people is such that if you go to the state with the largest bahai population, which is south carolina you will find that the majority of bahai's in that state are neither white nor middle class, nor well educated. that maybe true of bahai's; i am white and it could be said i am middle class. but i couldn't be said to be the typical bahai either in this country or anywhere in the world. the bahai faith is a world wide religion and in fact, according to the encyclopedia britannica year book of 1988, it's the second most widely spread religion in the world after christianity. it is established in more countries and territories of the world and has a significant following in those areas than any religion other than christi
to land. and for those of us who have grown up in the united states, this is very hard for us to realize- it's not something that's necessarily been challenged- but there, it's such a link. and we see people, you know, that form an identity around nationalism. now you see, maybe that's a very powerful way that people create identity and relationship. you see what's going on in the united states in the militia movement that we talked about and some of these patriot movements, in which their focus is the evil united states government taking our land away- this is our land, it's our constitution. so these ideas about land and religion are very, very volatile. i'm certainly not prepared. i mean, that's why i'm glad we have a robert moore, who's obviously well-funded, who started an institute at a prestigious place like the university of chicago to head up the parade, because i think someone needs to head up the parade. how you, you know, disarm the kinds of intensity about land we see in kashmir between the pakistanis and the indians- how do we disarm that? you know, we saw what happened in
of canada and the united states. these two highly-advanced and comparatively wealthy countries are home to an extremely urbanized and mobile popation. in the u.s., many urban areas are characterized by diverse cultures, which create a rich ethnic mosaic. oufocus is boston, massachuse, part of a megalopolis located on the northeastern seoa othe uniteds. macaciopulionsoston, massachuse, part of a megalopolis locahave taken root in older seoinner-city neighborhoods. in recent decades, these neighborhoods deteriorated, with a downward spiral in infrastructure, services and oppornities. but w stons bouncing back. with a downward spiral we'll see how relative location to the central business district, or cbd, is important to the development of these neighborhoods-- how so much can ride on their being part of federally-funded enterprise zones and how geographic information systems, or gis, can be used in addressing some difficult urban economic and social issues. boston, massachusetts. once a great port, it's now a world leader in high tech, higher education, bmedicine and finance. but like mo
in the land of israel is a partition into two states, and let me explain. originally, in 1947, the united nations called upon a division, or called for a division of the land of israel into two states. the tragedy of our situation in the land here is that we have two people, both of whom have just claims for sovereignty. it's a tragedy because both claims are just. and therefore, it seems to me that the only way out is to allow for both peoples to have the expression of their sovereignty- that is the only way around. and i think it's not only a matter of justice, i believe it's also a matter of israel's political interest to pursue this path. it's been a path that's all too often been rejected by both sides. it was rejected in 1947 by the palestinians. it was rejected after 1967 by many israelis. but i think today there are enough palestinians and enough israelis that realize that this is the only path in which to go, in which each people has its right. >> he said one thing. i'm sorry. >> go ahead. fire away, virginia. >> the dignity of self-defense. do i or any of us realize how people w
